Men’s health is one of the most important areas for women to be proactive about, and we’re all more attuned to the symptoms of men’s issues than women.
And the signs of menopause are very different than women’s, with men having a harder time adjusting to life after menopara.
So it’s important for men to feel confident that they are getting the right treatment.
To be proactive, men should ask their health care providers if they can get their health information on file, to make sure they’re not overdiagnosed.
If a doctor is reluctant to provide this information, men may need to talk to their family or friends, as well as a trusted health care provider.
Men who don’t feel comfortable with talking to their health professional can call the National Men’s Health Association’s toll-free helpline, 1-800-696-7267, or call 1-877-638-6100.
If they feel uncomfortable, they can also take the NMSHA’s Mens Health Clinic.
